“To always navigate between what I as a violinist want to be and do not want to be.
To climb freely beyond the confines of genres and branches in the search of musical expressions of the world and oneself.
To let oneself be fascinated by the silhouettes of the new and the unknown in their moments of creation as well as by the musical landscapes of the past.
To live as many of the fragile, fleeting moments in which music becomes an existential, interpersonal experience as possible.“
